A place for families to remember loved ones who never returned home from military service

In Memoriam

Stu Shaner

Paul Stewart 'Stu' Shaner
October 4, 1940 - December 13, 2016

The founder of the Oroville Veterans Memorial Park, and relentless advocate for the recognition of Butte County's veterans who lost their lives serving our country, passed away just months before the dedication of the park's Memorial Tile Wall that he worked 16 years to build.

Stu's inspiring enthusiasm is already missed, but his legacy will live on in our park.

Tile Wall at night

Everyone is invited!

There will be a brief  opening ceremony honoring service and sacrifice. Then you will be welcomed into your Butte County Veterans Memorial Park to review the tiles on the Wall of Honor, and to remember and reflect while on the Overlook - absorbing the sounds of the Feather River and taking in the view.
